I thought with 50/50 co parenting they could come to me more if they were unhappy, being controlled, wanted to get away etc. But if he is carrying out PA then he is abusing them in a way I am going to find extremely hard to get them out of.

If I win in a court I’ll have teens who don’t want me and hate me for doing that to dad.
If I loose ……Well it’s now an extreme lose lose situation for all of us.
I just can’t believe how this can happen to me. I just don’t know how I can salvage anything.
These mind games are horrific. The only thing keeping me alive some days is knowing to die would damage them even more. I don’t feel suicidal right now but where will this nightmare end.
